The Global Teleradiology Market size is expected to reach $8 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 17.31% CAGR during the forecast period. Teleradiology facilitates patient care by helping radiologists in providing services without being physically present at the patients’ venue. This is especially significant when there is a need for a sub-specialist including an MRI radiologist, pediatric radiologist, neuroradiologist, or musculoskeletal radiologist. The reason being, these specialists are usually located only in large metropolitan areas that function during the day. Teleradiology allows for the availability of qualified experts 24/7.
The technology uses standard network devices including wide area networks, internet, telephone lines, local area network and high technology computer clouds. Specialized technology is used to transmit images, enabling the radiologist to analyze multiple images for a particular study. Teleradiology also uses technologies including advanced graphic processing, artificial intelligence, voice recognition, and image compression. Images are sent to the other end of a hospital or other locations around the world by TV radiology viewers.
Considered by many as the fastest-growing technological trend, the cloud will have an impact not only on radiology and healthcare but also on many other sectors. Hospitals and diagnostic centers can now store their images on online data centers, freeing up valuable offline server space with the assistance of robust cloud infrastructure. This illustrates a key advantage of the technology ? images can be easily accessed without any difficulty at different locations and across different geographies. Even if the PACS database of a hospital goes down, it won’t take a risk on productivity or radiologist access. Radiologists can interpret any scan and picture such as x-ray when situated in another location-all of this with the help of teleradiology. Teleradiology practice is gaining popularity among hospitals and clinics as compared to recruiting and training staff, it is less expensive. Teleradiology is used for different purposes, including in-hospital imaging studies, research studies, teaching, and the gathering of the second opinion of images.
Based on product the market is segmented into X-Ray, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound and Nuclear Imaging. . X-ray was the dominant segment in 2018 and recorded a larger market share the same year. Economic pricing, high primary diagnostic use and the advent of advanced systems including filmless x-ray systems are among the factors that are responsible for the dominance of the market. This technique also has wide-ranging uses in various healthcare fields like orthopedics, chest imaging, cardiovascular treatment, cancer screening, and dental imaging. Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.
